The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) will hold a virtual town hall to provide information about Pandemic Unemployment Insurance programs, as well as answer questions from job seekers and employers.
The town hall will address questions related to the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, which expands states' ability to provide unemployment insurance for many workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including for workers who are not ordinarily eligible for unemployment benefits – including self-employed workers.
The virtual town hall on Pandemic Unemployment Assistance will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 1, and is the third town hall in an ongoing series designed to inform the public about department programs and unemployment insurance benefits.
Participants are encouraged to register in advance. Those interested in attending the town hall on PUA may register at:
